Experimental Methods for Clinical Practice


In 6–7 year-old children, the serum content of Fe correlated with activity of the right-hemispheric cognitive structures, the content of Zn correlated with the verbal-semantic type of information encoding typical of the left-hemisphere, and the content of Cu with adaptive brain functions.
